Castel de Daval

Lausanne | Switzerland

Spending a night at the Castel de Daval is much more than staying in a traditional hotel. This BnB offers 5 rooms, decorated and named among autochthone varieties of grapes. It is located in the middle of the vineyards surrounded by the alps, in the Valais Region, just one hour from Lausanne.

 Quick view of history

Ancient water tower, the Castle of Daval was built in 1949 to stock water to irrigate the vineyards. The castle was built on a big rock on the top of the hill. This construction has a medieval style by its facing in dry stones and its crenels. The Castel de Daval was the first to offer some wine tourism experience in the Valais. Every guest a welcome with a wine tasting and a visit of the winery. The next day a breakfast with only local products from the family is served to the guests. The Castel de Daval received the Gest Review Award 2018 from 

 Daval, more than a castle

The Colline de Daval is a family farm where different fruits and vegetable are produced such as grape, apricot, peer, apple and raspberry. The philosophy here is to highlight the local product by controlling the entire production from the plantation to the sales. More than a castle and winery, the Colline de Daval gives a real experience to their customer by welcoming many groups for wine tasting, escape room in the barrel cellar or for a lovely stay at the Castel de Daval. Monique & Bertrand Caloz-Evequoz are now assisted by their two sons Benoît and Damien who represents the 5th generation.
